Email Marketing Doing Well

Despite many Internet companies entering the deadpool at an increasingly feverish rate, there remain some wonderful bright spots.

Email marketing software provider AWeber Communications (a long-time contender in the competitive email space) announced its active customer base surpassed 50,000 businesses worldwide - a 65% increase. Thanks to the Philadelphia-based company's success, it is moving into a new office and increasing its roster of employees by 54%.

"With small businesses stretching every available dollar for maximum return, utilizing email marketing to keep in touch with customers and prospects makes a lot of sense in this economy," said Tom Kulzer, CEO and founder of AWeber.
